Reader feedback: Break down the barriers

Re: The Craft of the Roma, By Kristína Magdolenová, October 25-31, Vol 10, No 42

A very fine article indeed. It was a pleasure to see the Roma people presented in a positive light for a change. This is one small but important message to show that all people can learn to live together given the proper attitudes to one another. Let us hope for more such articles for our readers to see and to help break down the barriers that separate us from one another.
